    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My chemotherapy treatment is with gemcitabine and cisplatin along with dexamethasone I do have really bad hot flashes when I take the dexamethasone but other than that the nausea I had for years so I'm use to that and my oncologist prescribed zofran and it helps, I had very thick hair it is thin now but I'm not worried about that.

    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    It wasn't as bad as everyone told me and it makes doing my chemotherapy so much easier I wished I would have got my port sooner, I always was an easy stick until chemotherapy it destroyed my veins with my port I don't stress like I did I'm very happy with my decision.
